VTB Capital Brochure 2018

3 As part of the VTB Group strategy adopted in 2017, we are continuing to create a single universal bank and to implement a programme that will fundamentally transform our digital business. Last year, we completed the integration of VTB Bank and VTB 24. That important strategic project has allowed us to improve our control processes and create a single competitive structure that ensures effective interaction between our various business lines when resolving joint tasks. A large part of our success is down to the investment arm of the Group, VTB Capital. Since 2008, it has taken part in more than 830 deals in the debt and equity markets, attracting well over USD 285 bn of investment into Russia and other CIS countries. This year, VTB Capital celebrates its tenth anniversary. It came into being at a time when the investment banking business was at its prime. Since then, VTB Capital has lived through periods of tempestuous growth, but also more turbulent times. And our investment business has not only survived, but VTB Capital has actually become the leader in Emerging Markets, in the countries of Central and Eastern Europe, and in Russia. Our achievements are regularly acknowledged by Dealogic, Bloomberg and Thomson Reuters. Whatever challenges the global financial sector faces today, VTB Group’s international team will always be ready to take on new and interesting projects in those areas where it has a presence: Europe, Asia, the Middle East and Africa. Our professionalism and experience, as well as the trust our partners and clients place in us, means that we can work through challenging times, while always looking to the future. The Corporate and Investment Business of VTB Group offers a wide range of credit, transaction and investment products to large corporate clients. In addition, it also provides leasing and factoring services. CIB operates in all the regions where the VTB Group is present, including Russia, the CIS, Europe, Asia, the Middle East and Africa. Our flexible business model and readiness to take an innovative approach when looking for solutions, one that accounted for the prevailing market conditions, allowed us to hold onto and consolidate our leading positions. VTB Capital is the leader of the investment banking sector on the emerging markets in Russia, the CIS, and Central and Eastern Europe. The secret of this success is our team. All these years we have been working under the difficult conditions of markets in flux. They were difficult times, and I am very proud to be part of this team and part of this story. May the next ten years be equally bright, exciting and successful for all of us.
